Pepper Mash as the Heart of the Sauce
Pepper Mash is produced from a combination of freshly ground peppers and a saltwater brine.
Cayenne, jalapeno, chili, and habanero peppers are popular for mash.
Mash is aged for months to years and is the primary ingredient in the production of hot sauce.
Industrial ingredient buyers also like pepper mash as a seasoning and ingredient in many popular retail and foodservice items.
Pepper Mash is usually transported and sold in buckets, drums, totes, tankers and railcars.
Bruce Foods is contracted as the main supplier of pepper mash to Southeastern Mills for the production of their Louisiana Hot Sauce brand. They are the 3rd largest
